Fuel pump failing?

I have a 2000 Mustang Gt and it is constantly stuttering when I drive. I changed the fuel filter yesterday and it ran great for a couple of miles then it started doing it again. What else could it be other than the fuel pump?

Also it has 1/8 of a tank of gas and its 2+ months old. I had to replace the intake manifold and valve cover seals so I didn't drive it for a while. I thought it could be bad gas too?

It sounds as bad gas if it ran fine when u changed the gas filter. However it could be a pump. Try to rule it out by wasting all the bad gas change a fuel filter again woth new gas and check to see what happens then
